Chan Hong Ting
Based in: Singapore
In her works, Chan Hong Ting (b. 1998, Singapore) engages with domestic objects or materials which are familiar yet unassuming. Through her experiments with drawing and crafting, she is interested in bringing visibility to the seemingly mundane and less noticed. She is currently fascinated with the transformative potential and rhythmic process of working with paper pulp, as well as the folds and creases that mark time and states of becoming.
Chan majored in Printmaking and graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2020, and a BA(Hons) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2022, validated by Goldsmiths, University of London.
